Songbird series

The past week or so I have revisited a subject matter that I really enjoyed....songbirds. 
Chickadee 8x10 oil. 

Wren 8x10 oil

Mockingbird 8x10 oil

These three were a delight to paint and I'm excited to get started on the next "portrait" & pop Cardinal. 
These paintings and others are available for purchase. Visit my website to see my portfolio.

Red Barn - 2 seasons, 2 mediums

Sometimes I forget that my best source for a new painting is probably laying around in my studio - I often paint small watercolors or oils then set them aside to begin another project.  The Red Barn painted with fall colors in watercolor was my source for another Red Barn in spring colors - this time in oil.  They're both similar, but very different because (a) different medium and (b) different seasons.
Each has it's own beauty; the top is the watercolor - the bottom is the oil.  If I had to choose a favorite, I don't think I could.  What about you?
